Pros: "Wonderful service, great food, helpful, on time! A+ airline!!"
Pros: "Why have a Hong Kong customer Hotline if nobody ever picks it up? I called at least 10x during different days and different times, only a record answered saying to try later. So I had to call Thailand Hotline from Hong Kong and they told me to go to the airport at least 4h early to get cheaper price for luggage overweight. I arrived actually almost 5h early, just to realize that the counter only opens 2:45h before departure. When the staff finally arrived, they told me that it's too late for discount rate and there is nothing they can do about it. So I got fined for their lack of service. Failure throughout for such an expensive flight."

Cons: "The delay"
Pros: "The flight got us to our destination, with minimal fuss and no frills, which is what we paid for - so while the stars I gave aren’t amazing, it was exactly what we paid for"
Cons: "The flight did get us to the final destination, how they lost our bags and as a result we missed our shuttle to our ferry. Apparently the bags never got on the HK flight and therefore probably won’t make it to us for a day or 2. Then while we were filling in there paper work to get our bag back, we missed our already paid shuttle bus. We then had to pay for a taxi, which was 4 Times the price..."

Pros: "Never flew with Bangkok Airlines, so did did not know what to expect. Was probably the best flight experience we've had in awhile. Flew on a 40min flight from Krabi to Koh Samui and when we got to the airport we found out checked bags were free. Then on the plane was given a full meal! On a 40 minute flight!

We agreed but it took us 10 hours, due to many delays on the way that were their fault. Abd no taxi was waiting for us when we arrived at the pier."
